I usually create birthday cakes for kids and I love doing that because I love seeing the look of the kids when they see their birthday cakes for the first time. But when I get to make a wedding cake, I get excited because I get to explore a different side of my creativity. What I love about wedding cakes is that these cakes are the superstars of the reception second to the bride and groom that is. And I think of it as an honor that my cake be chosen for their special day.

For this cake, the couple wanted an elegant design with accented with feathers and pearls. Since this cake is monochromatic, instead of using color to liven up the design I used texture. The design alternates textured cake layers with those accented by pearls that I set on a fondant cutout that I handpainted with edible silver powder to make it look like it’s brooch. The top layer looks like its a headpiece with fondant flowers accented by the white feathers.
